Gravity and Strings

The primary research areas of Gravity and String Theory group are quantum field theory and quantum theory of gravity. In this direction, the group explores the quantum properties of black holes, early stages of the universe and cosmic inflation, string theory in various limits, strong coupling dynamics of a quantum field theory, AdS/CFT correspondence and conformal field theory . These require the understanding of quantum field theory of matter fields and gravity on various curved backgrounds including black holes, various dark energy and inflationary models and developing new tools to explore perturbative and non-perturbative aspects of a quantum field theory in flat as well as non-trivial backgrounds.
